You want to hire a lawyer that is an expert in his field. You want to hire a lawyer who has years of experience in injury law and has handled cases like yours before. So, you’re looking for experience, you’re looking for competency, you’re looking for honesty and fair dealing when you meet with an attorney for the first time. You don’t have to hire them. You can hire any attorney that you want. If you’ve done your research and you believe it’s a competent, experienced attorney, you go meet with them, tell them about your case and interview them. They’re interviewing for a job. They want your case, they want to represent you, that’s how they make their living and you’re their employer. You’re their boss, so interview them. If you’re unhappy in any way with their demeanor or you feel like you can’t trust them or have any negative feelings whatsoever, you don’t have to hire them. You can go try to find another lawyer to represent you who does make you feel comfortable, who does obtain your confidence because that’s what it is between a lawyer and their client. The lawyer has to have the confidence of his client. He has to earn that from them and what he says and what he does, and if a lawyer doesn’t provide that to you when you first meet with them or when you deal with them initially about your case, you may want to think about getting another professional to represent you.
